Bluegiga Launches BLE113 - a Smaller and Lower Power Bluetooth Smart Module

ESPOO, Finland, March 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Bluegiga Technologies, a leading provider of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity modules, today announced its new BLE113 Bluetooth Smart module. The BLE113 is an addition to the Bluegiga Bluetooth Smart product family, offering thirty percent lower peak power consumption, thirty percent smaller size and a hardware I2C interface simplifying connectivity to MEMS peripheral sensors. BLE113 also includes features, such as on-board application hosting, flexible peripheral interfaces, and very low power sleep modes.

"Our BLE112 was one of the first Bluetooth Smart modules on the market when it was launched in 2010. By launching our BLE113 we want to maintain our leadership position in Bluetooth Smart and provide our customers a feature rich module that supports long battery life applications in a significantly smaller footprint," comments Mikko Savolainen, VP of Product Management and Marketing.

One of the main benefits of BLE113 Bluetooth Smart module is its capability to host custom applications. The Bluegiga Bluetooth Smart SDK allows applications to be developed for the BLE113 with the Bluegiga BGScriptTM scripting language. In addition, Bluetooth Smart profiles can be quickly developed with the Bluegiga Profile ToolkitTM.
